MISS KATHERINE MORRIS
Saint Mary's Alma Mater
Saint Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be
They love thy high praises to sing,
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree
Around which sweet memories cling;
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name,
Afar out of sight of thy grove,
But the thought of Saint Mary's aye kindles a flame
Of sweet recollections and love.
Beloved Saint Mary's! How great is our debt!
Thou has cared for thy daughters full well;
They can never thy happy instructions forget,
Nor fail of thy virtues to tell.
The love that they feel is a heritage pure,
An experience wholesome and sweet.
Through the fast rolling years it will grow and endure,
Be a lamp and a guide to our feet.
May the future unite all the good of thy past
With the best that new knowledge can bring.
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last
Be thou steadfast in every good thing.
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still
Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill —
Of earnestness, wisdom, and love.

His true friendship and guiding hand have supported us throughout
our years at St. Mary's.

future times of indecision will direct
us toward finer ways of life. Her
lofty principles will remain embodied
in us wherever we are. She is our
ISRAEL HARDING HUGHES
His cheerful greetings and inspiring
words have enabled us to be steadfast

Miss Elizabeth Williams
Saint Mary's Junior College
Raleigh, North Carolina
As you know, earlier in the spring most of the members of the
class of 1954 made a pilgrimage to Saint Mary's. We thought
you might be interested in knowing some facts about our ex-class-
mates so that you can have something to put in the Bulletin about
It all started when Lorrie Clark, famed lecturer and traveler,
left Siam after a few weeks stay to head toward Saint Mary's
where her daughter, Huberta, is a student. She planned to go
via India, North Africa, and Western Europe. As soon as she
disembarked in Calcutta, she heard through Martha Barber's
agents that the latter was in Delhi attempting to sell her latest
invention to increase rice production. When they got together,
Martha decided to join her on their pilgrimage. By the time they
had reached Saint Mary's, they had seen almost all the members
of the class of '54 and had persuaded many of them to join them
on their journey.
Lorrie and Martha found Mela Royall, Foreign Minister to
Afghanistan, in the American Embassy at Kabul with her Secre-
tary, Jessine Hart. Mela had already been foreign minister to
many other countries, but the United States Government always
keeps her in the most strategic area. A few weeks earlier Mela
and Jessine had seen Frances Stubinger and Alma Weston in the
harem of a reknown Indian Prince. Jessine notified them about
the pilgrimage, but due to circumstances beyond their control,
they were unable to join the merry throng. Our able foreign
minister wired Susan Hayes and Trissy Holt in the oil fields of
Arabia about the journey. The two multimillionaires had been
having a difficult time trying to convince the Arabians that the
oil there belonged to them, but they were then ready to return
to the States.
The next person the group met was Jeanette Uzzell who was
attempting to swim down the Suez; she had crossed the English
Channel the preceding year in record time. She told Lorrie and
the others that Gray Proctor and Dr. Harriett Conger were both
in South Africa. Gray was fulfilling her ambition to go to Africa
and was finding additions for her animal collection. Harriett,
wife of a prominent witch doctor, was assisting her husband in
a search for new herbs for medicines.
From Egypt they went to Greece where they encountered
Mary Jordan and Connie Shaner making a detailed study of the
classics. Much to their disappointment and surprise the English
department at Saint Mary's had taught them all there was to
know; therefore they joined the group. Next they traveled to
Rome where Sibby Callaway and Nancy Glenn had retired,
leaving Myra Thayer in charge of their New York establishment.
The two Neo-Romans spent their leisure studying contemporary
Italian dress styles. They condescended to join the pilgrimage on
the condition that they stop by Fifth Avenue to give Myra the
latest fashion news. While in Rome they read in the Roman In-
ternationale, edited by Pat Perry, that Barbara Seaman, archeol-
ogist, had discovered in Florence an intricate plan of Dante's
cosmology for his Divine Comedy, After congratulating Pat on her
excellent editorial about Barbara they persuaded her to enter
From Rome the former classmates journeyed to Florence
where they spent four days trying to convince Barbara that she
should leave her work and go with them. The archeologist said
no but told them to look for Liz Holmes, Virginia Harriss, and
Pat Adams who were spending their vacation on the Riviera.
When the increasing group arrived at Nice, they found Liz,
Virginia, and Pat having coffee at a side-walk cafe. These two,
bored with the Riviera eagerly accepted an invitation to go on
Their next stop was Paris. Atop the Eiffel Tower they found
Leslie Hall sketching life on the Left Bank. She could not go
with them because she had an appointment the following Monday
with the president of France, whose portrait she was painting.
However, she did inform them that Liddy Cullen and Anne
Nichols were in the "parfum" business in Paris. The group went
to the elite "shoppe," which is the home of custom-made
"parrum.'' They consented to go with them.
Upon their arrival in the City on the Thames, Charlotte Lilly,
Mary Windley Dunn, Timmy Timmons, and Frances Perry in-
formed the pilgrims that Mary Clayton and Sallie Cowles were
doing Missionary work in Iceland in preparation for writing
their next book, Living With the Eskimoes in Iceland. The quartet
had flown over to London with their husbands for an international
medical convention. We understand that Timmy and Frances
were so busy reminiscing about their days at Saint Mary's that
no one else could get a word in edgewise. Consequently, Charlotte
and Mary Windley went out for a spot of tea and window-shop-
ing. The group couldn't persuade the four home-makers to join
them; thus they set sail for the States without them.
On their ship, the M.D.J., were members of the United States
Olympic team. This team included four of the world's best
hockey players, Dill Walker, Allan Hardin, Nancy Russell, and
Laura Ann Travis. Another alumna aboard was Carolyn Nelson
who had just beaten Babe Zaharius in the battle on the tuft for
the Woman's Golf Championship of the world. Our ex-classmates
told us that they were delightfully entertained on the ship by
the golden voice of Marilyn Hedrick, who now records for M.G.M.,
and by Ellen Ozon, the tap-dancing wonder of Miami and the
rest of the sunny south. The latter is now playing the lead in
Warner Brothers' latest production.
Before the port call at Boston, the pilgrims had wired Sara
Cobb and Kay Baker to meet them at the dock. When these two
met the party, they told the travelers about their newest enter-
prize-^Cobb's Cashmeres. Kay assists Sara in her handmade
sweaters. This duo readily joined the ever-increasing group.
The next stop was New York, where Nancy and Sibby went
to see Myra. Myra told them about the success of Linda Garriss''
and Allene Wellons' Steak House in Greenwich Village and
suggested having a party there. When the tourists checked in
at the Waldorf-Astoria, they were surprised to learn that Joan
Johnson and Alice Ann Winfield were the managers. They in-
formed the group that the finalists in the International Bridge
Contest, Nancy Eversman, Jane Gillette, Janet Rattray, and
Cynthia Bradley, were staying at the hotel. The next night a
grand reunion followed.
From New York the group progressed to Washington, where
they learned that Pearl Smith was having one of her fabulous
parties. She invited the group, so that they could meet the in-
fluential people in the Capitol City. To their delight, they saw
at the party Frances Spain, Speaker of the House. Before they
left Washington, they ran into Carolyn Baldridge, Ann Martin,
and Sharlene Howard who had made the trip to plead a special
case before a congressional committee concerning tire welfare of
their Texas dude ranches.
The wayfarers finally reached their destination, Saint Mary's
in Raleigh, North Carolina. Going up the steps of Smedes they
bumped into Mary Grady Burnette, who had left her country
estate in Garner long enough to attend the big event. Mary
Grady had notified Scottie Anderson, housemother at Caro-
lina, that the group was coming, and Scottie was there to greet
them. Lynda Anderson flew in from Detroit, where she and
her husband are in the automobile industry. As they walked
into the Saint Mary's parlor, Mary Lee LaFar, hostess, greeted
them in the traditional Hornback manner. She insisted on taking
them to the office of the recently-elected president, Doctor Libby
Patman, who extended the pilgrims an unusually cordial welcome
due to the fact that she was relieved to abandon her necessary
stiff and formal ways.
"Gigi," we feel that we've done our best. Take it from here.
